Dry, chilly weather continues Friday night, but a new weather system will move into the Bellevue area early Saturday evening, bringing with it slushy snow.
City crews will work 24 hours a day to service city streets, but take extra caution and limit travel if possible; streets may be icy in places. See essential winter weather tips in: English, 繁體中文, español, 한국어, 日本語, Русский and Tiếng Việt.
Some important reminders for winter weather:
- For life-threatening emergencies, call 911.
- Do not use any of the following indoors: generators, gasoline and propane heaters, outdoor heating equipment or cooking equipment such as grills and camp stoves.
- Please clear sidewalks in front of your home of snow and ice to help keep people walking and rolling safe.
- If possible, stay home and avoid driving during winter conditions.
- If you must drive, consider the conditions — it may take more time to stop and turn.
- If you are walking, wear shoes with good grip, wear ice grippers or bring a walking stick or other mobility safety device.
- Leave extra distance behind snowplows and do not pass them.
- If possible, do not park vehicles on streets. This allows our crews to plow the roadway quickly and safely.
